>CPUs
Professional tasks - R9 5900X / 5950X
HTPC, web browsing - G6400
Budget gaming - i3 10100
High refresh monitor with midrange GPU wrt res (e.g., 1660 Super @ 1080p) - i5 10400
High refresh monitor with OP GPU wrt res (e.g., 2070 Super @ 1080p) - R5 5600/X or i7 10700
>Upgrade advice: if you already have a 3rd gen R5 or 8th/9th gen i7 or better, you're fine

>MOBOs
AM4 B550/X570 - CPU-less BIOS flash feature advisable if pairing with Zen 3
LGA1200 B560 - supports memory OC

>RAM
Always choose at least a two stick kit; 2x 8GB is standard
RAM speeds of 3200CL16 or more recommended
AMD B, X, Intel B560, Z chipsets support XMP

>GPUs - Just WaitTM
Consider MSRP, beware Radeon driver quality
Budget 1080p or holdover card - USED RX 470/570
1080p - Just WaitTM for new low end GPUs
1440p - RTX 3060 Ti thru 3080 or RX 6800/XT
2160p - RTX 3080; beware TDP

>CASE AND COOLING
Many AIOs do not outperform large air coolers
Mesh fronts typically improve airflow and temperature

>STORAGE
A 250GB or larger SSD is almost mandatory; NVMe recommended

>PSU
Calculate; aim for 50-75% at load
Beware spikes with high end GPUs; buy headroom
80+ Bronze, semi or full modular

What do you have? What are you buying?

I'm about to get my first pair of floorstanders and my first AV receiver. Currently looking at the Sony STR-DH790 with a pair of Wharfedale Diamonds 230 for £279 and £299 respectively. I think this is pretty hard to beat for the price.

Type safety

No.80374493 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Fellas, how come we never enforced a strict type safety policy, especially something like that of Haskell or Rust into any programming language that ever comes out? Writing Haskell has given me more pleasure than Fagscript or Pytard ever has.
